    19 "WTF" Teen TV Moments That I Still Can't Believe Actually Happened

    Riverdale Season 3. Full stop.

    🚨WARNING: This post is full of spoilers. Read at your own risk! 🚨

    1. When the dog ate Dan's heart on One Tree Hill

    The CW

    Name a more iconic moment. I'll wait.

    2. And when Clay FORGOT HE HAD A SON, also on One Tree Hill

    The CW / Via


    3. Another One Tree Hill moment — when Nanny Carrie abducted Dan, fed him bugs, then tried to kidnap Jamie (AGAIN) only to be stopped by Deb.

    The CW

    Honestly, One Tree Hill... are you OK?

    4. When Betty kidnapped her own mother on Riverdale.

    The CW / Via

    And this was a season with a town quarantine, mass seizures, and an organ farm operating as a cult.

    5. And when Archie killed his past self (?) with a baseball bat?

    The CW

    Archie kind of sucked at this point, but still. What was this?

    6. Oh and who could forget when Betty saw her niece and nephew LEVITATE? Like...?

    The CW / Via

    Okay, fine, I'm done with Riverdale.

    7. When Bart "came back to life" on Gossip Girl...

    The CW

    8. ...and then Chuck let him FALL TO HIS DEATH.

    The CW

    9. When Dan was revealed to be Gossip Girl.

    The CW

    There were MULTIPLE times we saw him REACT to GG posts BY HIMSELF. Why?

    10. When Mona faked her own death, then actually died (they showed her body?), and then turned out to be alive on Pretty Little Liars.


    I'm confused!!!

    11. And when Maddie Ziegler randomly showed up on PLL to do a weird dance?


    Artistic, I guess?

    12. Or how about when the new "A" was revealed to be Spencer's British twin... ????

    Freeform / Via

    I had to search in my memory for how PLL ended. When I remembered this, I was sure it was a fever dream.

    13. When it was revealed (spoiler alert) that Alex killed Bryce on 13 Reasons Why.


    Of all people, Alex?

    14. When Mr. Shue's wife faked her pregnancy and then tried to buy Quinn's baby on Glee.


    First Quinn convinced Finn he got her pregnant from a hot tub, then this?!

    15. Or what about when Sue tried to commit "sue-icide" with gummy vitamins.


    So offensive. So ridiculous.

    16. When Marissa shot Trey on The O.C.

    Fox / NBC

    And spawned a world of memes.

    17. And when Marissa, THE MAIN CHARACTER, died.



    18. When Annie literally KILLED SOMEONE on 90210 and covered it up for an entire season... and dated the guy's nephew!

    The CW

    She finally fessed up and just ended up getting community service for a few months. This was totally glossed over.

    19. And finally, when it was revealed Josie's coven had somehow transferred her twins into Caroline's womb on The Vampire Diaries.

    The CW

    Even for a fantasy show, this was a lot.
